Some things should never be connected to the internet like cars, fridges. ovens etc. Look at what happened to BA this week, a fault in their massively engineered multi- backed up computer system completely failed costing millions of pounds and disrupted the travel of millions of people.
Are you saying that what happened to BA was because they were connected to the Internet? Because, from what little I know of it, that's complete BS.
I work in an industry where we also have an expectation of 24/7 availability, and consequently have "massively engineered multi- backed up computer systems". We have had a complete failure too. Turned out to be a misconfiguration by a person, which meant our duplicated systems actually all relied on a single device, which failed. Another aspect of this is that (like BA apparently) we hadn't ever actually tried turning off each of our devices to see if it was really configured properly. Poor planning, by people.
Basically we are being trained to accept technology taking over more of our lives and in the process doing away with heap of unskilled jobs.
You say that like you think it's a bad thing!
Actually, I don't think technology is taking over our lives. It is adding to our lives, allowing us choices we didn't have before. From my point of view, doing away with unskilled jobs is a good thing. I don't want a monotonous repetitive job that requires no thinking. Do you? Do you think anyone actually does?
